AFL Gippsland’s imminent death wish for the 83-year-old Mid Gippsland Football League couldn’t dissuade droves of supporters paying a record gate of $37,500 at Morwell Recreation Reserve, to see Trafalgar defeat Yinnar by 16 points in the 2018 seniors grand final on Saturday.

It appears certain all MGFL’s 10 clubs will join as one in a fervent attempt to stave off AFL Gippsland’s proposed amalgamation of Mid Gippsland Football League and Alberton Football Netball League into a newly-named 15-team Central and South Gippsland Competition.

AFL Gippsland has called Mid Gippsland and Alberton club presidents to meet with it on Wednesday evening at Morwell RSL, to further discuss the draft amalgamation.

AFL Gippsland’s request for MGFL and AFNL clubs to respond with feedback comments on its draft recommendation for change has recently been extended from September 14 to 17.

A decision on the future of both leagues will be announced by AFL Gippsland on Friday, September 21, after which any appeals against the merger must be submitted to it by September 28.
